DAY 1 : MUMBAI
Welcome to Mumbai, India! Mumbai,  is the financial capital of India and the home of India's Bollywood film industry. Also called India's "maximum city", Mumbai is known for its extreme standards of living, fast paced lifestyle, and the making  of dreams. It's a cosmopolitan and increasingly westernized city that's an important base for industry and foreign trade.

DAY 2 : MUMBAI
Today we will enjoy half day sightseeing tour of Mumbai , where you will discover the fascinating Dhobi Ghat. Each morning laundry from all over Mumbai is brought here soaped, soaked, boiled, beaten, and thrashed. The next day, after being aired, pressed, folded and wrapped, the bundles are returned from where they came. The secret that keeps the operation running smoothly is the coded symbol that each dhobi-wallah places on every item. Then visit the Prince of Wales Museum (closed on Mondays). Housing many interesting artefacts, the museum structure itself is a work of art. Designed by architect George Wittet, who also designed the Gateway of India, the museum is crowned by an impressive white dome. During your visit, admire displays of jade work, weapons from the Mughal Empire, and clay and terracotta figures from the 3rd century BC. The main sculpture room contains excellent Greek influence 4th and 5th century heads and figures from the Buddhist state of Gandhara, a former colony of Alexander the Great. The main attraction, however, is a superb collection of Indian paintings, including manuscripts and miniatures. Continue to Mani Bhawan, the Gandhi Museum, for an intriguing visit. Serving as Mahatma Gandhi's Bombay base between 1917 and 1934, Mani Bhawan now serves as a museum and memorial. A series of tiny dioramas tell Gandhi's life story; photos covering the walls capture historic events; a sitting room and bedroom preserved behind glass take you back through time; and personal artifacts offer insights into Gandhi's hopes and struggles. One letter is addressed to Hitler, asking him to refrain from war. Gandhi also corresponded with Roosevelt, Tolstoy and Einstein. End the tour on Marine Drive dubbed as the Queen’s Necklace, Mumbai’s most popular promenade and a favorite sunset watching spot. Afternoon at leisure. Overnight Stay.
